Our 4 Core Values
KNOWING - In the book of Philippians 3:8, the writer says that of all the things he’d ever accomplished, he now considered worthless when compared to the infinite value of knowing Jesus Christ! Covenant is actively taking that same passionate, all-in approach. Every time we gather corporately each Sunday to proclaim the gospel message about Jesus, we come away convinced that Jesus is our only hope. While we love great music, fellowship, and fun, we are convinced that Jesus Christ’s gospel message of hope and redemption is for everyone.
GROWING - Life…by its very definition speaks of constant activity and change. So naturally our lives as Christians mean we are constantly changing and growing. We believe this happens best in small groups. At Covenant we are continually adding small-groups that are biblically based but most of all practical. John 15:4 speaks of fruit that is produced, but only because it is connected to the vine. The vine is Christ, we are the branches, and ultimately the fruit becomes more evident and plentiful when we do life together.
SHOWING - In 2 Corinthians 3:3, Paul, the great missionary states that one of the proofs that God really does exist is by the way we conduct ourselves as Christians. Covenant strives to get together at least 3 or 4 times a year outside of our weekend experience for the express purpose of showing and serving our communities for some type of service-related project. This has included making care packages for law enforcement, staffing a city-wide fundraiser, volunteering at local shelters, and taking national or international mission trips. Either way…we want to be sure that the unreached community is saturated with the practical love of Christ through acts of service.
GOING - Before Jesus went back to heaven, he left very simple but specific instructions. (Matthew 28:19-20) “GO and make disciples, baptize them and teach them to obey my commands.” This means all people who call themselves Christians have the personal privilege and responsibility of sharing their faith with others. For most though, evangelism is scary and overwhelming, yet it is still possible with proper training and most importantly, the leading of the Holy Spirit.
